Italy To Supply Another SAMP/T Air Defense System To Ukraine

Italy To Supply Another SAMP/T Air Defense System To Ukraine

The Italian government is preparing a new military aid package for Ukraine that will include a SAMP/T medium-range air defense system, La Repubblica reported on May 2.

The Italian newspaper said that the air defense system Italy plans to deliver was deployed in Slovakia. Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico said in March that Rome decided to pull back the system from his country, without clarifying the reason.

The military aid package will also allegedly include American-made Stinger man-portable air defense systems, La Repubblica wrote.

The newspaper reported that the package should be presented by the upcoming Group of Seven, G7, summit in Italy, which will begin on June 13.

Italy has only five SAMP/T batteries. Last year, it supplied a system to Ukraine in cooperation with France. The system was destroyed, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense.

The air defense system, which was developed by the France-based Eurosam, is armed with Aster-30 radar homing interceptors originally developed for naval vessels with a range of up to 120 kilometers. The system utilizes THALES’s ARABEL multifunction fire control X-band radar which has a range of 100 kilometers.

The system can counter an array of airborne threats including manned and unmanned aircraft, and is said to be especially effective against cruise missiles.

The Kiev regime has for months now been asking for more air defense to bolster Ukrainian air defenses in the face of increasing Russian drone and missile attacks. Last month, Germany said that it would provide Ukraine with one more American-made MIM-104 Patriot long-range system.

The additional Patriot and SAMP/T systems will not likely make any difference whatsoever. Closing Ukrainian air space is very much impossible due to the advanced intelligence and offensive capabilities of the Russian military.

you are referring to the communism fascism connection? soviet thieving system, and italy hyper inflation? don’t be ridiculous, italy is a sovereign state and not a u.s. slave state as you claim. where do you get these insane ideas from.

the soviet system bought the fiat production line of model 126. if you weren’t a communism politician you would wait a couple of years to get the car delivered. the quality was low in comparison to most standard cars produced in the rest of the world. i don’t understand why you are so defensive.

the cia stole the italian election in 1948. are you aware of a point at which the us relenquished this control in italy? would it be during the height of the nato false flags of gladio during the years of lead/strategy of tension? thanks for derping.

Ramses II

can you present the harm made in italy by nato, i have seen no signs. the support of castro, venezuela military, several dictatorship countries in africa from moscow are visibly worse. is that nato doing it from moscow?

clyde

no. there was no harm done to italy when the cia stole the election in 1948. there was no harm done when the cia/mi6 gladio operation committed false flag terror acts in italy during the seventies. there is no accounting for taste, particulary with a retarded shitpile like you, but there is nothing worse than the us-installed african dictators. they’re worse than the us-installed dictators in latin america. asshole.

and still at level of first variants of s-300. though sponsoring nazism even with hand guns is also a crime against humanity. meloni-criminaloni.

first they promise peace to got elected, turning tables right after.taking russia out is the only chance they have to stay top dog. this is true, cause brics is on the doorstep and its not only a merging of rapid growing economies, whose alignment stays mercantile only. the united hippos have never lost a world war and that’s why they are all-in for this.

… just, germany!

since russia has been fun in ukraine, german politics and the german press have been playing completely crazy!

world war ii will come, 100,000,000 euros for the “bundeswehr”.

the problem: the taurus still do not fly, the rifles shoot around the corner, the ships are broke and there are no functioning tanks!

so everything is the same, except for the shouting …
